Adam Reeder & Atlas with iPod Prepare for Lift Off

http://bit.ly/dej3db

Nothing makes me happier than seeing a talented artist like Adam Reeder receive recognition. Better yet, a check coming with the accolades is even more cause for applause.

The minute I saw photos of Adam Reeder’s art in late December, I saw and heard him speaking two languages with his work. For every thought that Adam articulates, an unconscious one seeps out of his mind and into his forms and images.

Atlas with His iPod by Adam reederBeing a Mac person with an equal interest in Greco-Roman gods and iconic Greek sculptures — especially when interacting with themes of gender, sensuality, religion and technology — I believe that Adam’s work is original, incredibly fresh and intellectually provocative.

He’s avoiding some of the controversial subjects for now but I’m dying for him to go there.  Religion and female sensuality would be perfect. It’s already bubbling in some of his other work.

In the same way that operas are trying to understand the best way to engage the younger generation by making opera relevant to their worldview, Adam’s sculptures engage a younger generation with concepts of civilization in a modern context.

I don’t see Greek gods being a common topic of discussion with gamers, but ‘Pan with his iPod’ is a conversation generator.

Sleeping Gamer by Adam ReederSpeaking with Nicholas Forrest of Art Market Blog about his ‘Socio-Technic Evolution’ series, Adam said:

Pan with his mp3 player is the first in the series. It has won first place in the spring show at the San Francisco Academy of art university, as well as getting into other shows. My goal was to combine iconic Grecian images, and god’s with well known technological objects. The Grecian images and god’s were to represent western culture. The Greco-Roman empires are known as the root of western culture. I avoided using anything from the Cartesian time periods so as to keep the religious contexts out of the discourse.

In America's Future, Athena and Minerva Have No Place

In the ongoing case of the 10 American missionaries being held in Haiti, there’s little more news this morning. Our writing on this case encompasses several angles.

Last evening we added Paperwork | Procedure Never Part of Published Haitian Orphan Rescue Plan, after reading Laura Silsby’s ‘business plan’ for the rescue plan, which remains posted online.

Group Desired More Children

Shortly after, the Guardian UK published an in-depth article recapping the various proceedings. The Guardian added a new element to the discussion, of Silsby phoning a couple in the US, waiting for their child, offering three times to bring the child out of Haiti. The adoptive parents said ‘absolutely not’, but this rejection not dissuade Silsby, who went to the Haitian orphanage anyway. The child had been moved. The Guardian article is posted in Paperwork | Procedure Never Part of Published Haitian Orphan Rescue Plan

Other reports are surfacing, based on interviews in Haiti, that the group tried to round up many more children.

In Laura Silsby’s own business plan for the Haitian orphanage, the mission statement uses the words ‘gather the children’. There was no stated intention to obtain any paperwork or abide by any procedures mentioned. The time table allowed only to gather up the children and leave the country. This is the group’s own plan and is posted in our article.

Britain Launches Independent Climate Change Research Inquiry

Following on the heels of controversy surrounding the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the UK’s University of East Anglia announced today it will widen its inquity into the so-called ‘climategate’ scandal that preceded Copenhagen talks.

The UEA has invited outside assistance from the Royal Society, Britain’s national academy.

Sir Muir Russell, who recently retired as vice-chancellor of Glasgow University, will head the investigation into  the way the unit handled data, including allegations UEA scientists manipulated and suppressed evidence.

Dubai Fountain | Burj Khalifa | Death of Icarus

Blogging into a post I wrote in Las Vegas in Aug 2007 Madewell’s Alexa Chung Say ‘No’ Las Vegas Style, I smiled at the Flickr photo in my Las Vegas photo search. 

The photo is not of the Las Vegas Bellagio fountains, but of the new Burj Khalifa, whose fountains are 25% larger than the Bellagio’s in Las Vegas, according to Flickr’s EVø.

Today this ‘my fountains are bigger than your fountains’ macho, Modern-values photo is ironic, given the temporary closing for unscheduled maintenance of the Burj Khalifa’s observation tower.

My purpose is not to rehash the story or criticize the Burj Khalifa in any way.

I’m writing only to say that  I was convinced — and advising clients —  that the world was headed for a major meltdown. Arriving in Las Vegas in Aug 2007, I never felt so empty in America.

The symbolism of these grand structures reminds us of man’s capabilities and also his shortcomings. I say ‘men’ because this has been your show to date, guys. Do any of us doubt that there’s more to come? We all know we’re not done yet, having played with monopoly money for the first decade of the 21st century.

Chronicle of Philanthropy | America's 50 Top Givers

via Flickr’s Abby LaneThe Chronicle of Philanthropy has released its list of the top 50 American givers. Achieving a top spot wasn’t as difficult as in previous years, reflecting the fact that the list of people making big gifts has shrunk.

A donor needed to part with just $16.2-million in 2009 to qualify for The Chronicle’s list. In 2008 that number was $30.5-million; and in 2007 it was $39-million. The median gift was $41.4-million, meaning that half of those on the list gave more and half gave less. That figure compared with $69.3-million in 2008 and $74.7-million in 2007.

New buildings, presumably with donor’s names attached, weren’t in abundance. A key focus of more than one donor was business ethics.

George Soros (No 6), an investor who actually made money last year despite the financial chaos, committed a total of $150-million to philanthropy initiatives. A third of which went to establish the Institute for New Economic Thinking at Central European University, in Budapest. The institute’s first conference at Kings College April 8-11 will examine why economic theories failed to predict the global recession.

Front and center on the Soros-funded website is the message: The entire edifice of global financial markets has been erected on the false premise that markets can be left to their own devices, we must find a new paradigm to rebuild from the ground up.

Another deceased investor Raymond A. Rich (No 12) left a mansion and cash totaling $75-million to create a leadership institute at Marist College in New York State.

Earth-Orbit Climate Model Results Contradict Current Global WarmingTheory

In yet another example of researchers driving a dagger in current climate research ‘knowledge’, researchers have run new scientific climate models exploring how the Earth’s orbit affects long-term climate trends.

For the second time in a week, we have new research data that explores other possibilities, other models of climate change theory with very different results from the predominant theory.

Post Copenhagen, I watched a PBS-type show of people in Bangladesh arguing that Americans should stop driving cars because we are flooding their countries with our global-warming emissions. Not only are environmentalists proposing that we retool the entire international economy, but people in developing countries are convined that the developed countries are killing them and are now responsible for any and all climate-related problems in their countries.

As Copenhagen fell apart, one woman negotiator from a developing country was threatening to cut her wrists and drew blood as a last-ditch negotiating position, basically saying ‘you are killing my people.’

Today I read that if there was no global warming, sea levels may remain high for another two thousand years, without any greehouse warming. Scientists have embraced one model and ignored the other hypothesis — AGAIN.

DisneyNature 'Oceans' Seduces Marine Lovers

Photo from ‘Oceans’ trailer, movie opening April 22 in UShttp://bit.ly/a6ZQiT

We knew something was going on with ‘oceans’ when a small AC new post moved to the top read for several days this week.

Updating the story was an education in the challenges — not only for coral reefs — but all of biostructures of oceans and the creatures calling them home.

Reading this week’s TIME magazine, we have the answer. Disney’s movie ‘Oceans’ opened in France, drawing twice as many viewers as George Clooney’s ‘Up in the Air’.

‘Oceans’ Trailer

The discussions around ‘Oceans’ highlight a different approach to environmental action, one that resonates with us at Anne of Carversville. Admittedly, we didn’t set out to become dolphin activists who worry about biodiversity in Madagascar.
